Taranto Wedding Photographer Francesco Gravina, of Apulia - Italy

I am a destination wedding photographer. Over the years I focused on the world of weddings and from 2006 I finally started to express my ideas and creativity through reportage photography, or known as photojournalism. Exchanges, workshops, and collaborations with other colleagues in recent years, led me to the conclusion that much heart, and an almost invisible presence of the photographer during the event, creates best results for a real wedding reportage. A beautiful picture is something so subjective. It doesn’t have to be technically perfect to be beautiful, yet it needs to be able to re-evoke unique moments and feelings. In one single image, there is so much to say and, even more, transmit to those who look at it, again and again in time. I am a very sensitive person, one of those lucky who get excited while waiting of the bride, or enchanted in front of a kiss at the sunset. And I like to get involved emotionally in front the love stories of my couples, this is the secret of the success of my “Photo Wedding Stories”. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Taranto wedding photography by Marco Colonna of Apulia Italy

Hi, my name is Marco Colonna, I live and take pictures every minute of my days. I was born in Cosenza in 1984 in a neighborhood in the city center. I define myself as a dreamer, I love to observe, I am curious and I look for simplicity. I was very young when I started to take an interest in photography, but it was the scouting experience that stimulated me and led me to cultivate this passion. With the passage of time, it has evolved, taking on the forms of a dream in which to believe. Photography has always intrigued and excited me, not only for its strong ability to convey emotions but above all for its great power to tell stories. In life as in photography, there is always something to learn so I am always looking for something new. I am fascinated by the beauty, emotions, spontaneity, and wonder that can emerge at any time of the day. I like to capture these moments with naturalness and respect because they are destined to last over time. On the day of the wedding, I tell the day as it was lived, trying to bring back the joy, love, and emotions of the spouses. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Because there's nothing more interesting and fulfilling to me that compose a story of one of the most exciting days of our life. I love to photograph weddings in the Apulian countryside, but also to travel and discover new places, meet people and experience new cultures. I love naturalness and spontaneity and always look to capture emotions. It might sound cuddly, but no words explain love as the glances, gestures and silences of those who really love. Trying to grasp these nuances is more than an job to me: it's a therapy to regain the beauty of live in the folds of nowadays not always reassuring life. [Taranto Wedding Photographer]

Andrea Sampoli is a wedding photographer of Italia - WPJA photography in Toscana and Siena

I’m a Tuscany wedding photographer based in Siena, but I work in all of Italy for weddings. I have taken photos for weddings in Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio, Milano, Como Lake, Rome, in the Chianti hills, in Val D’Orcia, and in many other beautiful italian locations. I have a reportage style in which a discrete approach, attention to details and spontaneity are the main ingredients. I always have this objective: to create a story through photos, a photo narration as faithful and natural as possible. That’s why from the beginning, I try to establish starting with the first contact with the future bride and groom, a rapport or feeling of confidence to create a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere that permits me to give life to natural and spontaneous photos full of meaning and sentiment. I was born in Siena in 1977. I graduated with a degree in political science and I obtained a doctorate in the history of European political parties. After working several years at the University of Siena, various events and my passion for photography led me to the decision to become a professional photographer. Shortly after starting my career as an exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer, I was fortunate enough to gain experience in the art world. I published for the magazines Play Boy Italy and Art Tribune and showed my photos at exhibitions at various art galleries ( Wikiarte, Magazzini del Sale). After the birth of my first daughter ( Maria Ludovica) my main focus became to be a Siena Wedding Photographer, a exclusive Tuscany wedding photographer and everywhere in Italy. I know every angle of my marvelous region: Siena, Florence, Arezzo and all of the beautiful villages and towns. San Gimignano, Chianti hills, Val d’Orcia and the Crete senesi hold no secrets for me. Other than wedding photography, I also teach at “ Studiumfotografia”, a school I created, where I advise many up and coming photographers. After the birth of my second daughter (Maria Luce), the University of Siena gave me the honor of the position of visiting lecturer of digital communications in photography. When I’m not working (rarely) I dedicate myself to my passions: naturally Ludi and Luce, but I also love watching movies, reading and I cannot live without music!

Francesca Vitulano Umbria Wedding Photographer

Francesca Vitulano - Documentary wedding photographer based in Umbria. Hi, I'm Francesca and I'm the female soul of "Framelines" studio. I’ve been photographing weddings professionally since 2012 all over Italy and abroad. With a Bachelor Degree and a Master in Fine Arts, I became interested in photojournalism while studying Set Design. Started with a strong passion, photography became year by year my full-time job. My professional dream was to work in an international and dynamic environment and "Framelines" offered me the chance to work with couples coming from all over the world, to be creative and have the chance to experiment. I really didn't think twice. I have quickly learned the rules of wedding photography and thanks to my sensitive soul I've discovered that my war-horse is to enter completely in intimate with the subject I'm shooting and this allows me to be constantly present documenting the wedding with an unobtrusive vision in order to enhance the raw emotions and the un-posed spontaneous moments. I now photograph between 30-40 weddings a year and I’m lucky enough to be involved in very different ceremonies (Catholic, Civil, Symbolic, Jewish, Indian, Arabic, Orthodox) that give me the chance to enter strictly in contact with different cultures from all over the world. Beside the Italian territory, I also flew over Italy border for capturing destination weddings abroad: In my "photographer passport" you can see few traditional three-days weddings in Morocco, two international marriages in the Netherlands and a Scotland wedding. The best feedback I received is when one of my clients tell me that through my images you can really touch the positive vibes of the wedding day, you can really see people enjoy. That's true because wedding photography is something I authentically love and enjoy doing. Professional Association: - I'm an active member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), one of the most prestigious photography associations for international weddings.

Naples wedding photography by Federica Ariemma, of Campania, Italy

Hi, I'm Federica! I was born in Naples in 1987. I have coffee flowing in my veins and a strong Neapolitan soul. I am strongly linked to my land and to my origins, even though I feel I belong to the whole world. I love Asia, Asian peoples, and Buddhism. I love traveling, as soon as I can I prepare my backpack and leave. I am a greedy perennially on a diet, I love white chocolate and pizza, strictly Neapolitan. I love simple things, I like habits and routine, but I am one with headshots. My motto is “let you go“. I am precise, determined and solar. I look tough, actually I’m very sensitive. My colleagues nicknamed me “the sergeant” because when I work I am serious and very strict. I don’t let one pass. Despite this, at every wedding, I am moved. I hide the tears behind the camera, the only place where I feel safe. I abandoned after a 9-year course of study and a specialization in Food Science to live of photography. I love weddings. I love the emotions of the spouses, the unpredictability of people, I love tears, deep looks, intertwined hands, the warmth of families, strong hugs, children who run and get dirty, grandparents who fall asleep. I try to tell every story in a simple, natural and elegant way, as I perceive it and live it. I simply let myself be carried away by emotions and by the day, without directing it or modifying the natural course of events. I like to think that my story will be a memory forever in someone’s life. I love this job because, in reality, for me, it’s not a job and, as someone says: “love your job and you’ll never work a day of your life”. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

Italy wedding photographer Raffaella Arena studied Disciplines of Art, Music and Entertainment

Photography for me has been always a little magic. I remember going in the darkroom was like going into another world, in a holy place where be essential to be quit. I like so much to watch the paper ripple in the water, soften, soak and sink! It was as if the water movement was enough to make appear a face from scratch! I was born in the photographic chemical smells… my father was a photographer. I took my first pictures worthy of attention in 1994, and shortly thereafter they became a photographic exhibition in my city. Since then I have never stopped photographing and decided that photography would be “what I’ll do when I grow up”. Over time separating me from becoming a professional, I took my Bachelor’s degree in art and performing arts and learned to shooting pictures on the theater sets. In 1999 I met the Magnum photographer Leonard Freed, and during my workshop I learn to know to and appreciate the photojournalism photography. Later, in 2003 at another workshop, this time with Ferdinando Scianna, I decided to begin my adventure in the wedding photojournalism. As a professional photographer I have also worked for several advertising agencies creating numerous corporate reportages, still life and portraits. In 2010 I was admitted to the Wedding Phojournalist Association - WPJA and in the same year I was recommended by White Magazine Italia in the "Excellence in Wedding Photography" contest. In 2012 I obtain through examination, QIP (Qualified Italian Photographer) certification in the Wedding category. [Cosenza Wedding Photographer]

Naples wedding photography by Luigi Reccia, of Campania Italy

I have the restless mind of those who have dreams and desires hidden among the stars. The first thing I clearly remember is when at the age of 6 I started to draw copying from a Mickey Mouse comic book. From then my entire life has been linked to visual art. I've always been a stubborn person, this has led my life through good and bad decisions until in 2008 I decided to become a photographer. My first passion anyway has always been music, my mother and father are two rock 'n' roll souls who gave me good ears and the chance to express myself with the things I love the most. When I started shooting pictures, I started from music. I've been following local bands, gigs, and festivals for years, I've worked (I still am) in recording studios as photographer/videomaker. There never been a single day without listening at least one song in my life. Little by little I entered into the wedding business, which is my main activity since 2012. I'm a lifetime daydreamer, a romantic soul who still believes in good simple things such an eye-contact, a hug or a moment of silence staring at a warm sunset. I search for the truth hidden in one of those moments, taking pictures for me means capturing a moment between two moments, and giving it to eternity, stopping time. I think to myself as a free astronaut, a cosmonaut who sails aimlessly and relentlessly in the sidereal space of his thoughts and curiosities. I live among the stars. [Naples Wedding Photographer]

Naples wedding photography by Serena Faraldo of Campania Italy

Class of 1985. Neapolitan by origin and upbringing, Partenope (the Siren from Greek mythology associated with my beautiful city) taught me many things; inside my soul, I feel the warmth and “serenity” of the sea which, if necessary, can become powerful, wavy and stormy. I am a Pisces ascending Lion; I have a passionate soul at heart but can keep an equally quiet and relaxed attitude on the surface, as my name “Serena” suggests. I've been proudly sporting my bangs since I was a kid (though sometimes a little crooked) and I won't let any hairdresser cut them. My fringe is not the only thing I carry with me from my childhood. I started drawing as soon as I was able to hold a pencil between my fingers and never stopped ever since and I still have the same love for art and images. This world made of colors and shapes of my childhood, never faded from inside of me; instead it has evolved, guiding me to explore many forms and expressions of Art. My creativity and passion for art became a precise path of studies all based on images, colors, shapes and Art, starting from Art high school up to a Fine Arts Degrees in graphics and photography. I consider love, and the chance to love, the greatest gift that life can give you; the most powerful fuel for any metaphorical engine. That's why perhaps I’d best describe myself as a “Love photographer” more than as a wedding photographer. I deeply love my job. To me, it’s not just a simple job, but a source of everyday happiness; a dream that comes true every time I’m able to hold my camera and become a storyteller. I love to tell love stories and I do that in the most caring, creative and passionate way. There are many other things that I love, besides my job; I love my dog Rori, who is my little old, grey best friend. To be honest I love all dogs and if I meet one, I have to cuddle him/her for at least 5 minutes! I love my grandmother, my mother and my sister, who are my story and my memory. I love my nephew, Simone. I love vintage stuff. I could spend hours in the flea markets in search of small treasures. I love dancing despite being a terribly uncoordinated person! I love everything that is a "game"; be it a role play, a table game, or a simple video game…I’m in! I love to meet people who have been able to keep their inner child alive, just like I did and I try to do every day of my life. I love travelling, UFO documentaries, swing dance, cold pizza at breakfast, warm pyjamas, watching the stars imagining life on the planets up there, Japanese mochi, and learning. When I’m not working on photography, I spend all my time on travel, music, movies, books and TV series; I strongly believe that all this will keep my mind open, helping me to be a better photographer.

Wedding Photographer captures quite moment as the bridesmaid looks timidly out before entering the scene
Weddings can be chaotic, noisy affairs where emotions are displayed publicly, so one of your biggest challenges that day can be capturing that quiet, intimate side. Trust, anticipation, skilled observation, savvy lens selection and a host of other judgments make it possible to bag those poignant moments in images that recall the day for those in attendance, and reveal a story for those who were not. It is all part of the unique value proposition that our members bring to wedding photojournalism.Read more
Wedding photography detail of bride and bridesmaids Preparing for the ceremony outside in the wind with their bouquets.
With the snap of a shutter, a camera lens captures a single moment in time; one that can never occur again in the exact same way. At any given wedding, there are an infinite number of these moments that pass us by. Some hold in place longer than others; some come and go in the blink of an eye. It is through such fleeting details that some wedding photojournalists earn their keep. With a professional eye honed through years of visual training and practice, they constantly scan the wedding scene...Read more
Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more
Philippe Swiggers, of , is a wedding photographer for Puglia
While wedding party stereotypes still exist, most people realize there’s more to being a bridesmaid than looking beautiful, more to being a groomsman than adding life and excitement to the reception party. But even the bride and groom might not fully understand just how helpful these roles can be, long after the train is bustled and the speeches are given. With a little direction (and not that much effort), members of the wedding party can facilitate great wedding photojournalism —a favor that...Read more

We are absolutely delighted with the pictures, we cannot thank you enough :) One problem though, how am I supposed to pick out a few favourites when there are too many favourites! We loved so many of them that I couldn't pick any shots in particular, but some of the action shots are brilliant, particularly whilst we are dancing. It bought back so many great memories from the day and you have captured the atmosphere perfectly. Going through the pictures it was like we were there again. Everyone loved them and commented how much it bought back the day. I honestly cannot praise you enough for the pictures, we were so happy :D
